Whew! First time I've had to really get on the web today. As always, it is an absolute thrill to finally put the faces with the names(brooke not included - picture whore! - "I gets paid!").
I had met Blondie and Irreverent a few years ago so it was nice to see them again. They're such sneaky debils. Still fading and not yet df'd or da'd - that's gotta be a record in Blondie's case - just look at her post count! They seem like a long lost aunt and uncle of mine.
AK-Jeff and wife were totally different than I had expected. So down to earth and sweet - how could you ever shun them? Jeff, you need to get your wife to sign up here. She would fit right in. I think you may have started something with that two beer salute....do you think we'll be seeing copycats in future pictures of 'fests?
Check Your Premises was pretty close to what I was expecting. I have a feeling that we probably have a lot in common, but as with most meetups, there never really is enough time to talk with everyone at length. He was so clean-cut, he could easily have passed as the most *spiritual* of the group - at least if a JW were to judge based on appearances...
Buttlight and Whyamihere seemed like they've been friends forever. You would never have guessed that this was only the second time they have been together in person. Brooke is an extremely rabid sports fan. She will go all kung fu on your ass if you root for the opposite team.(Go Broncos!) Both of them are very sweet and a barrel of fun at the same time. Pictures and words from a message board just doesn't compare to meeting the real person.
All in all, it was a very successful meetup. For future meetups, it would probably be a good idea to start it off earlier and find a place that isn't closing down early for an employee party. Oh well, we'll remember those tips for next time.
****Another round of hugs goes out to everyone who was there last night!****
......I will add a few more pics from last night in a little bit
